The Forsyth County Democratic Party has made tremendous progress in reaching folks in the community over the past few months. This election year, the emphasis has been placed on our phone banking efforts, since it allows for political activism from the safety of our homes. Here are some of the highlights of these phone banking efforts:
Thank you everyone for your efforts so far. If you would like to join our phone banking efforts, sign up for phonebank training here: https://www.mobilize.us/forsythcountydems/
Over the past few months, the Forsyth County Democratic Party's Communications Committee has been hard at work, providing necessary information to those in the Forsyth community and beyond. No group has been working harder than the Graphics Design team.
The Graphic Design team currently consists of three members: Olivia Santiago, Ryan Howard, and Todd Echols. During their time on the team, they have created graphic design templates, enhanced our current portfolio of graphics, and created unique and fun graphics for use in delivering FCDP content. When asked why they volunteer for the Forsyth County Democratic Party Communications Committee, here is what they said:
Olivia Santiago: "[I am] a young entrepreneur that volunteers to help create pathways for the new generation. The Forsyth County Democratic Party is one of my outlets!"
Ryan Howard: "I was excited to help spread the messages that matter most across our party and believe the Dem platform lends itself to the progressive changes our country needs. When I can, I like to help make seemingly complicated policies on voting information succinct, eye catching, and easy-to-digest."
Todd Echols: "I volunteer because I want to help elect Democratic leaders who will work to improve the lives of the people in Forsyth County."
Thank you for your hard work!
On Monday, June 29, the Forsyth County Democratic Party showed that the Democratic Party is the party of life.
Several members of the Forsyth County Democratic Party provided masks and hand sanitizer to individuals in the Forsyth County community. They also handed out absentee vote by mail ballot request forms and spoke to these individuals about how important it is to vote in this year's election. Kerry Peay, the President of the Forsyth County Democratic Party Progressive Caucus, spearheaded the event, in conjunction with several other FCDP auxiliaries.The event took place outside of the FCDP Headquarters (1128 Burke Street).
This event was the first in a series where members of FCDP will be handing out masks and other supplies essential to surviving COVID-19, as part of the Protecting Our Community Initiative. If you would like to get involved, email the Forsyth County Progressive Democrats. Here are several photos from the event:
